Black Gold 2

Image 1 / 10

'Black Gold' returns to Discovery for a second series and delves deep into the high-stakes world of oil prospecting in America. Chronicling 50 days on Rig 28, 'Black Gold' showcases the lethal physical dangers and financial hazards faced by three different crews involved in this fascinating industry. Viewers meet the teams working hard to bring this precious reserve to the surface, and the prospectors who risk millions in the hope of rich reward. It is a race against the clock - and a battle against scorching heat and adverse drilling conditions - to drill three kilometres into the earth in hopes of striking it rich.
